How To Play

  • The main goal of the game is to clear the playing field of all bricks.
  • To remove a brick, it has to be hit by a freely moving ball.
  • The user controls a horizontally movable bat, which must be used to prevent the ball from touching the bottom border of the screen. All other sides of the screen, as well as the bricks themselves, cause the ball to bounce back.
  • In addition to the standard type bricks, there are also special brick which require two hits by the ball. Other special bricks release an additional ball into the game.
